"How am I supposed to work with a guy like this who doesn't know the first thing about showing respect for his elders?"
— "Goku's Ancestors"

Gregory is a small dark green cricket like humanoid, with an upright posture, antenna, and bug like eyes, he also has a tail like protrusion at the bottom of his torso. After Cell blew up King Kai's Planet, Gregory has been seen with a halo.

Voice Actors[]


  • Although Gregory did not appear in the original Dragon Ball manga by Akira Toriyama, he was one of the many filler characters designed by Toriyama.[5] Toriyama created him because the anime staff wanted one more character for the stories on King Kai's Planet.[2]
    • Strangely, Gregory still appeared in the manga version of The Return of Son Goku and Friends, more specifically in Chapter 2.
  • Gregory was not revived with the rest of Cell's victims, presumably because Shenron was instructed to "...revive all those on Earth killed by Cell". Since Gregory lived and died in Other World, he would be exempt from the wish. In Dragon Ball Z Kai, Gregory was revived along with Cell's other victims, unlike the original anime in which he was not.
  • Gregory's name is likely a reference to the main character in Franz Kafka's novel "The Metamorphosis". In the novel, Gregory is transformed into an insect resembling a cricket or roach.
